I need to be able to sleep in the back of my truck. That’s one of the reasons I bought the truck. Here are some ideas I mocked up in Adobe Photoshop (because it’s the app I know, I don’t have Illustrator on this Mac).
Since I will be building a sleeping platform in the bed of the Toyota Tacoma, I need to dust proof it. I realized how much dust gets into the bed of the truck pretty quickly by driving many miles of dirt roads with the tonneau cover attached. One look inside and everything was covered in dust. The tailgate seal I used below is the Ultimate Tailgate Seal available on Amazon.
Since attending the 2016 Overland Expo East event, I became hooked on overlanding culture, sold my motorcycle, and traded my car in on this 2014 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road double cab truck. And so the build begins, as does the journey.
